The Society for the Preservation of the Gruber Wagon Works, a non-profit foundation established in 1983 to promote this National Historic Landmark, has published The Gruber Wagon Works--The Place Where Time Stood Still. The work presents a broad range of historical and biographical material that illuminates this late-nineteenth century to mid-twentieth century wagon-making factory. For the first time, the vast amount of documentation pertaining to this historic factory has been worked into a volume that tells the tale of the Gruber Wagon Works from its start (including a brief biography of the Gruber family) through its peak years of production (with many photographs of their signature hay flats and box wagons) to its declining years as a wagon repair facility, concluding with its historic move and restoration.

Hunsberger has divided the book into three segments: the history of the wagon works, the people involved, and the preservation of the structure. Content includes personal interviews and reminiscences as well as thorough documentation of the historic move, the largest ever undertaken by the Army Corps of Engineers.
